—— How do you get inspiration to create your works normally?
Nature is my favorite inspiration and subject. Just paying attention to what’s happening outside with each new season gives me a lot to work with.
—— Any favorite thing/area of your home? How do you like it most ?
I love our living room with its big windows that look out to our garden of mostly native plants and trees. I love our garden too. We grow vegetables and flowers for each season. I look forward to the pops of color each season brings.
—— How do you choose your interior items for your home?
I’m a collector. I’m drawn to old or handmade things with character. I’m not afraid of color and I love little details. The house we are in now has many built-in shelves and I love to fill them with unique things I’ve found.
—— And it was COLOR DROPS that you welcomed into your home.
I was immediately taken by how beautiful the vases were. The color, texture and sheer delicateness of them delighted me. The little COLOR DROPS are so charming! I love the scale of them— perfect for little buds from our garden. The glazed rim at the opening also caught my eye, such a nice detail.
—— Anything you would expect for Moheim new item/collection?
I always enjoy color! Lots of folks seem afraid of bringing in the “wrong” color but I’m not so sure that exists. It’s all about what it’s paired with. I don’t want to oversaturate my space, but the pops of color are pops of joy if you ask me. I hope Moheim finds a way to bring in fresh color to their new collection.
